  1. If you have at least word 2003, open it up.

    As some of you may know, the flight name of the first plane to hit the twin towers was Q33NY. Type this in microsoft word 2003, and then change it to the first windings (NOT webdings)

    Notice what it makes?

    If you don't have word, what it makes is a airplane, then two towers, then a skull and crossbones, then the jewish sign.

    Ok I tried it and I immediately said, "wow" but then my analytical side kicked in a said to me "Sub, this just does not sound right" so I googled it and here is what I found:

    Q33NY, a well placed hoax in September 2001, as reported, wasn't the flight number of one of the terrorist planes (Wingdings Hoax).

    It was AA 077, AA 011, UA 093 and UA 175.

    It is a good shocker though.

    "Wingdings Hoax Q33ny plane tail numbers Urban Legend September 11 2001 N334AA N644AA N612UA NYPD Windows FONTS"

    Tail Numbers are from the manufactures, eg "MEMPHIS BELLE" (Serial No. 41-24485)

    Flight numbers are per Airline company's and routes, eg United flight 612
